    End of the Buffalo Era

    For years now we've counted on Buffalo fielding a weak team, and being an easy 2 wins within the division.  I think that might be changing.  Buddy Nix seems to be drafting sensibly, and in prticular, I'm concerned that Shawn Merriman and Marcell Dareus might team up to be part of a good D.  It's only one preseason game, but...

    They have had a decent defense, just no offense.

    right direction maybe, close to us, nope, not at all.  We have 3 better Qbs than they do for the long haul.  A better coach, more picks next year....

    I think they are still 2 W's on the schedule, but by no means cakewalks anymore.

    Doesn't it seem that every time they figure out their defense or offense, though, that the other half of the team falls apart?

    Also, they aren't as bad as their record indicates ... they have to play a tough schedule ... NJ, NE, and Miami.

    Merrimans health will last about as long as LT's.

    Re: End of the Buffalo Era

    Merriman will probably do his "sack dance" during week 2 and then injure his hip from his years of steroids or whatever hormones he was taking.

    As far as Darius, the kid is good. But, who does he have aroudn him to make him stand out? It's more likely that one of his teammate benifits from teams double teaming Darius than he is. Also, I think our second string offense is better than the Bills starting offense.

    I give the Bills at least 2 years until they could seriously contend, and by that I mean actually have a chance at splitting their regular season matchups against the AFC East division.

    Re: End of the Buffalo Era

    Contend for the AFC East Diviion soon?  No.  Get good enough to split the series, to catch us on a week where they bring they're "A" game and we don't?  That's what I'm worried about.

    I think Miami is headed to real nadir, but I can see Buffalo providing us a much stiffer challenge going forward.

    Re: End of the Buffalo Era

    Im sorry but this is the worst Oline in the league they just played against.

    Who plays LB for them? Merriman and then who? Their QB is a journeyman, they lost Lee Evans, Oline is still a mess.

    Good enough to split with this team? I just don't see it.

    How many times have we beat them in a row? You should hear the way they view this team and this rivalry...we're like the plague to them.

    Buffalo will win 2 games this year, their only hope is to get the 1st pick in the draft and select Andrew Luck.

    I can't agree.  And the loss of Evans will make them even more anaemic on offense (if that's possible).

    buffy always is a tough division game inspite of the score/record...i think they will give the jests a run for their money for second place...

    Exactly. Not all of the games from the 15 game winning streak were easy.

    2003 0-31  31-0
    2004 31-17 29-6
    2005 21-16 35-7
    2006 19-17 28-6
    2007 38-7  56-10
    2008 20-10 13-0
    2009 25-24 17-10
    2010 38-30 34-3

    Well, I guess they do stink.

    Buffalo is where the NFL has its version of the witness protection program.  They make talent disappear.  Fitzpatrick looked good last year, but he lost Lee Evans.  That window where we could count on wins included talents like Willis McGahee, Marshawn Lynch, Eric Moulds, Evans, Takeo Spikes, Lawyer Milloy, Drew Bledsoe, that DB who left, the best punter ever, Posluzny, and and and and and and and.

    Re: End of the Buffalo Era

    darius will be very good, he had a sack the other night and merriman had 2. even though its just the preseason its a good bet that darius is the real deal. when merriman is healthy he is a sack machine but the patriots have always held their own against him... the bills should have a decent defense in particular the pass rush but they wont score much... maybe just enough to beat the jets and surely enough to beat the phins.

    Because under Buddy Nix, the strategy seems to be to build your roster through drafting good football players that will help build a team, not drafting glamour players, and not trying to sign big-name veterans.  I don't know that it will build them a champion anytime soon, but it seems a lot smarter route.  It seems to be smewhat similar to what they're doing in Detriot.

    You know how you can count on some times (i.e. Oakland) to draft stupid each year?  I don't think Buffalo is in that category anymore.

     The Bills are up and coming? Never heard that before. At first I thought this thread might be about them moving to Toronto which is something you may see when Ralph Wilson dies. Not that I want to see him go since he's a class owner but he was born in 1918.
